Why are you no longer posting questions to the Facebook page?
Questions were anonymously posted for people for around 7.5 years. When questions were first being posted there were 1,000 followers to the page. Over the years, the page has grown to having 20,000 followers (and it often reaches 100,000 people per week). Along with the growth of the number of followers to the page, the number of questions received each week has skyrocketed. Many questions sent in are not even by people who have "liked" the page, they are repetitive, can be answered with a quick google search, can be answered by visiting this website, or are simply seeking to promote a business or give a poor review of a business. There are many different reasons why questions will no longer be posted, but the most important one is that it has become far too time consuming and it's not something that pays the bills. What will be posted to the VCM Facebook page going forward will be everything that is posted to this website, local event info, links to parenting articles, etc.
How do I submit information about a local event?
Event information can be emailed in for consideration. VCM receives a lot of information each week, so not everything received is posted. What is posted is carefully selected to meet the VCM criteria. If you would like to ensure your event is posted and gets premium exposure, you can pay for that service here.
Where do I find information on things to do in this county with the kids?
VCM goes to great lengths to keep the site populated with information on things to do with kids. In fact, it was the reason the site was started back in 2009. Always check the family friendly events calendar, the Marketplace (which is local business directory), and the guide on fun family things to do in Volusia County. Be sure to also check out the ads on the site, as many of them are for fun opportunities that you may be interested in checking out. There are also periodic guides published covering summer camps, winter camps, and more. Those can usually be found linked on the main page and on the events calendar.
Where can I find an OB/GYN, primary care doctor, pediatrician, counselor, or other medical specialist?
Please check the expectant mother's guide, the health section of the Marketplace, and visit Halifax Health, who is a great supporter of this site and offers world-class healthcare options across the county. Not only do they have a high level NICU, but they also have a pediatric emergency room, as well as primary care physicians throughout the county, and women's care services as well.
